Name of creator
Norm Keziere was a photographer and filmmaker, probably best known for the travelogues he shot and produced for the British Columbia government between 1969 and 1983. Keziere started in still photography, then cinematography, while serving with the Royal Canadian Navy during the Korean War. In 1950s he did freelance cinematography for the CBC and CTV. In 1968 he moved to B.C., and in 1969 he joined the Film and Photographic Branch of the Department of Travel Industry. In the years that followed, he directed and photographic numerous films for the Ministy of Tourism – notably “Highways to Splendor” (1970), “Island Eden” (1972), “Mirrors to the Sun” (1974), “Valley of a Thousand Peaks” (1978), “British Columbia: Nature’s Masterpiece” (1980), and “Here to Share” (1981) After leaving government service he did some work for Yaletown Productions.
